    Since they lost last night, I need to tell you what I REALLY feel about the 2021 Sox!

    They're pretty good actually. This season has been downright enjoyable. So far, they haven't been the .500 team that some of the naysayers were projecting.

    I'm enjoying the ride.

    I know it may not last, but these guys are fun to watch- win or lose.

    I look forward to seeing some youth coming up, at some point, too.

    It's funny that our biggest needs 1B/2B/LF all happen to be our best offensive prospects.

    The pen may be a "mess" but it's still top 10 in baseball. Getting rid of the bottom 2 guys and replacing them with productive young arms will help.

    Half chuckle.

    I still don't understand why they didn't have him play LF at all in ST. Just crazy to me.

    But less exciting unless he can recreate his 2019 aberration.

    I've made this point, before, and one can argue SP'ing is one of our top 4 high need areas. According to soxprospects.com, there are our top prospects, as of now:

    1B Casas
    2B Downs
    CF Duran
    SP Whitlock
    SP Houck
    OF Jimenez
    SP Seabold
    SP Ward

    It's no mistake Bloom did not go out and spend large and long at these 4 positions.

    On top of this, we also have other depth at some of these areas- some AAAA types, some more promising:

    1B: Chavis, Santana, Ockimey (kills LHP)
    2B: Chavis, Santana, Arauz
    OF: Santana, Puello, Gettys (This area is thin)
    P: (Besides moving Whitlock to SP) Weber, Gossett, Hart, Politi & others (also thin)

    Gotcha again. I'm the proto-ghost. The creme de la creme. The pinnacle. The apex. The zenith. The alpha. The omega.

    I figured this season would be sub-.500. I remember the years when the June swoon was normale, but not since JH took over.
